Using colour in your school

Choosing colours for your school can be a daunting task.

The fear of getting it wrong means many default to magnolia - inoffensive but hardly inspiring.

Colour brings fantastic opportunities: to breathe life and personality into your school; to create zoning in classrooms that supports different teaching styles; and to encourage a sense of pride and belonging.

At Smarter Spaces, we want to help schools unlock these opportunities.

Colour Services Team

Supported by years of experience and the most cutting-edge research, we’ll help you to:

  1. Choose a colour scheme that creates a consistent visual identity around the school, while demonstrating how it will look in your existing environment.
  2. Separate different zones with colours to help achieve teaching and learning needs.
  3. Support children with special educational needs and disabilities by making wayfinding easier.
  4. Engage your pupils in the design and colour selection process - to foster a sense of pride and ownership.
  5. Bridge the gap between inspiration and delivery by introducing you to the best products for your project.
